Not a day fleets by
when those thoughts don’t enter my
mind. I wish that you didn’t make

me do it. I wish that you would
change for me. As the feathers settle
on the floor, I wonder what has become
of us.

I wave in and out,
an indecisive curtain
at an open window.
I could jump out
of the window into
a sea of dreams,
pass all the nightmares
and monsters, they look
at me, don’t touch me.

Finding someone,
a new puzzle piece
as I walk into a river
swarming around me
as thoughts do in my head.

I am lost in an
empty sea, placid
and fair, I feel
nothing.
